How cute and clever!

I came across this on Emma's blog, in her Stockholm guide. It's the counter in a kids' clothing store. Would be ideal in, lets say, a glassware store, so you could safely rummage through your bag for your wallet, without worrying about your child breaking half the items in the store!

A cute story

My next door neighbours are an older couple from Sri Lanka. They have a granddaughter my son's age and whenever she comes to visit them, they play together outside our house. Last summer, they (the granddaughter and my son) decided to be very helpful and picked all the rhubarbs from our garden. I spent the weekend making jam and as a thank you I walked over to my neighbours and gave them a jar to give to the little girl. The grandmother was so happy with this, that in a few moments, she came over to my house with a bag of home-made Sri Lankan sweets and this beautiful dress that she had just brought back with her from home. I was so thrilled!

Winter wardrobe

Whenever the seasons change, I'm always too late to get out the appropriate kit. In the freezing cold I'll be out there with no mittens or a hat, and in the beautiful spring sun, I'll still be wearing my winter coat. To add on to that, I've found that having two children (and a third one on the way), I'm very lucky to get out of the house with just the bare necessities (such as phone, wallet, keys) when trying to get everyone ready for their daycare and myself for work. And with only a fraction of my wardrobe actually fitting me at the moment, all I can do is admire the stylish girls around the fashion blogs and look forward to a less hectic life, sometime in the far away future!

Well then...

... I guess I'm back! I feel like I owe you an explanation. The reason for my absence is just plain old tiredness from working full time, being a mother of two energetic little boys, and, oh yes, this little gal:

We're so excited! 

The perfect outfit!!
